How to play Powerball

Powerball costs $2 per play. 

To play, select five numbers from one to 69 for the white balls, then select one number from one to 26 for the red Powerball.

You can choose your lucky numbers on a play slip or let the lottery terminal randomly pick your numbers. 

To win, match one of the 9 Ways to Win: 

  • 5 white balls + 1 red Powerball = Grand prize
  • 5 white balls = $1 million
  • 4 white balls = 1 red Powerball = $50,000
  • 4 white balls = $100
  • 3 white balls + 1 red Powerball = $100
  • 3 white balls = $7
  • 2 white balls + 1 red Powerball = $7
  • 1 white ball + 1 red Powerball = $4
  • 1 red Powerball = $4

There's a chance to have your winnings increased two, three, four, five and 10 times through the Power Play for an additional $1 per play. Players can multiply non-jackpot wins up to 10 times when the jackpot is $150 million or less.

All prizes are set cash amounts, except for the Grand Prize. In California, prize payout amounts are pari-mutuel, meaning it's determined by the sales and the number of winners.
